This summer Arte de Lusso worked in partnership with Acoola to provide install interior and exterior shade in a luxury penthouse on the Costa del Sol. The penthouse has spectacular views, but it was essential that they were protected from the glare of the sun in order to enjoy them.
Acoola is expert in providing the perfect outdoor sun protection solutions from Europe’s top manufacturers, as well as stunning outdoor furniture, while the Arte de Lusso team worked on the ultimate window dressings for the interior and together we came up with a series of proposals that pleased the penthouse owners. Together we offer the highest quality products on the market for interiors and exteriors.
In the living-dining room we selected ultra-modern Wave blinds in white from Silent Gliss. The design is eclectic and it allows you to play with the volume of the blinds in a way that enhances the look of the room as well as adjusting the amount of light. In addition, these blinds are very easy to operate as it is a single chain system.
For most of the bedrooms and bathrooms, we decided on the Duette shades by Luxaflex. The Duette shade fabric has a honeycomb weave, which has an energy saving effect and offer a way to reflect the sun in such a way that they keep the home warm in winter and cool in summer. We chose white for this project, which is fine enough to let natural light in during the day, even when lowered.
However, the bedroom on the upper level was more challenging, because the windows were angled, rather than vertical. The owner wanted something that was modern, beautiful and functional, so we chose Creation Baumann blinds in a white, laser-cut fabric that could operate on angled windows. Added to this, the laser-cut pattern allowed a very modern play with light, which pleased the clients.
For the rest of the windows in the penthouse, we used integrated Duette shades from Luxaflex. These have a five-year warranty, are operated by a simple cord and can provide 100 percent blackout, thanks to the aluminium inside the fabric. As mentioned before, this helps with energy saving and it also blocks external noise.
The partnership of Arte de Lusso and Acoola on this project meant that the owners got a seamless service and a unity in the look of the penthouse that might not have been so easily achieved if we hadn’t worked together. We love the result, but more importantly, so do our clients.
